Trump pays $2 million to misusing his charity,” New York attorney general says

President Donald Trump has paid $2 million at a court-ordered ruling for misusing his charity,” New York attorney general Letitia James said in an announcement on Tuesday.

“Charities aren’t a means to an end, and that’s why these damages talk into the president’s misuse of power and signify success for not-for-profits that follow the law”

Last month, a federal judge ordered Trump to cover $2 million in a settlement following the base admitted at a settlement in which the president misused base funds to assist his 2016 presidential effort, settle private legal disputes and buy portraits of himself and sports memorabilia.

Each charity will be given a total of 476,140.41. The settlement also called for compulsory training requirements for its now-defunct base’s supervisors — Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump, which James explained every has undergone.

“Funds have gone in which they deserve — to eight plausible charities. My office will continue to struggle for liability because nobody is above the law — not a businessman, but not even a candidate for office, and not even the president of the USA,” James stated.

Alan Futerfas, a lawyer for The Trump Organization, stated that the organization is pleased with the outcome.

“The Foundation situation settled months past with all problems resolved and funds going to charity. We’re quite happy with the outcome,” he explained in an email to NBC News.

The Trump Foundation, the charitable organization started by Trump in 1987, consented to disband at 2018 and give away its resources following a stunt by then-acting New York attorney general Barbara Underwood disclosed a”shocking pattern of illegality” that comprised”criminal coordination with the Trump presidential effort, repeated and deliberate self-dealing, plus far more.”

James took on the situation in 2019 when she had been sworn in as attorney general and lasted the litigation against Trump and three of his eldest children, who served to the charity, also barred them from working any charities in New York state.
